Background
My name is Captain Ted Gibson. I began my professional guiding career after graduating from the University of Wisconsin Eau-Claire in 2009 with a Biology degree. The fall after graduation I took a job as a guide in the Everglades National Park where I chased after Snook, Redfish, and Sea Trout. Since that first winter in the Everglades my experiences have included being a cameraman in Africa, Operating boats in the Gulf of Alaska, and many more! Over the years I have been upgrading my captains license and currently hold a 50 ton Masters. I gained my Offshore Fishing experience working for one of the largest and busiest companies in the Naples area. I took up the offshore fishing game quickly and started catching some really nice fish!
Techniques
Whether its free lining baits for trophy Snook on the nearshore wrecks or catching Snapper for dinner in the chum line...I love it all!
